LINUX GAMING --
Similar to Valve offering their collection of games to Mesa developers (as well as Ubuntu/Debian developers), Feral Interactive is now offering their Linux game collection for free to Mesa developers.

As thanks to the work done by these open-source developers on improving the 3D driver space and in hopes of further testing with Feral games in the future, the company is giving dedicated Mesa contributors access to their current collection of Linux games as well as future titles.

Feral is judging dedicated contributors by those with 25 or more commits to Mesa in the past five years. Feral announced this policy today on the Feral site. This policy while now public and formal isn't entirely new: Feral has previously been providing game keys in private to select Mesa developers and a while back I was helping to ensure Nouveau developers were getting access to the games for helping to address OpenGL driver bugs.
